Forts combines the structure building style of World of Goo, fortress building of Castlestorm and the projectile based combat of Worms to create a very cool looking physics based action RTS packed full of destructive mayhem.
In Forts players collect resources, build forts, reinforce them, research upgrades and arm them with weapons and use them to blow the opponents forts to pieces. The structures you build aren’t fully rigid like Castlestorm, there’s a bit of sway to them that’s reminiscent of World of Goo’s structres, and if the enemy manages to target an integral part of your structure then the whole thing can spectacularly come toppling down.
Forts is playable a single player campaign maode, and multiplayer versus and co-op modes for up to 8 people. It features three playable factions, a selection of powerful weaponry, hidden rooms, an unlockable tech tree, a built in level editor and full mod support so it should offer plenty of replayability.
It’s a great looking game that looks set to offer a fabulously fun blend of building, resource management and blowing sh*t up. The Beta starts today and ends on December the 9th, so sign up now for some real time strategic fort smashing fun!
